Ex-Kyuss members Brant Bjork and Nick Oliveri have reunited in a new trio, called neatly Stöner. The famous musicians’ new project has released a new concert film, “Live In The Mojave Desert: Vol IV”, on March 20, 2021. This was the final stream of the “Live In The Mojave Desert” series, deep in the heart of the California wilderness, which included additional performances from Earthless, Nebula, Spirit Mother and Mountain Tamer.

Brant Bjork tells us how Stöner was formed: “Nick called me up and wanted to jam. So we got together and we were having a blast and this felt right. It was cool all of us playing together. It felt like we were kids starting out again just playing for the fun of it without any outside pressure. We all put our musical influences into this via original jam sessions. This feels like a mixture of punk rock, metal, blues rock and hard rock. Some stuff we’re already known for and some stuff that will surprise and hopefully entertain people.”

According to Brant, “Stöner is a full-time thing. We’ve got long-term plans for Stoner and the music that we create. We’re booking tour dates for 2022 onwards in Europe and possibly in the United States. Those plans are in the hands of our booking agents but we’ve been told the pandemic should be under more control next year and more areas will be open up for live performances to happen.” 

And Brant concluded: “it’s been nothing but fun playing with Nick and my drummer Ryan Güt. I wanted to do something different and Stöner allowed me the opportunity to do this. This project feels right for me especially during the pandemic. It feels good vibing new ideas off Nick, who is one of my closest friends and I can’t wait to perform these new songs to a live audience. As I feel these songs deserve to be heard by a live audience.”
